Been playing it all night and right now. Had 2 subs with Hendo so that should tell you how improved the subs have become. Still working on it and trying to get Diaz/Davis etc



Still haven't had a sub. I was really close but then I gassed. Love how you can be losing and then you change direction and you are winning the sub battle. I love submissions in this game.

Also, I am waiting to get the contender's pack as well. I bought the game from Gamestop but didn't pre order. Usually if you still buy the game from Gamestop they give you the DLC they say you get when you pre order. But I didn't get it so just waiting on it to get released in the Playstation Store.

I'll offer up my opinions on the game.

Positives

Clean graphics and amazing attention to detail

Fight engine is much improved and the sub system is WAY better than the last one. I still think EA's MMA had the best sub-system, but this one works.

DLC is amazing and I didn't even get Mayhem, Davis, Diaz, and Stann.

Love the fact that they have PRIDE mode and even more so that Lenne Hardt's introductions are featured.

There's a ton of different modes available and they're all pretty awesome.

Negatives

Loading time is a pain in the ass. It's really fucking annoying.

Some of the fighters have striking techniques that are less than optimal at certain times. Anderson Silva and his spinning kicks and punches come to mind. I've gotten my lights turned out because he threw one of those at the worst possible time. Lyoto's headkicks are a little easy to see coming as well.

Autosave is back and it's still a son of a bitch.


The Weird

Does anyone else notice that Buffer says something weird before declaring the winner? I can't understand him. It sounds like he's saying "la giant"

I noticed he only says something weird in the Bell Centre. So it must be something French.

Love it. Me and my brother in law battled Jon Jones v. Georges St. Pierre in Pride at MW about 10 times straight. Every fight ended with knees from north-south, soccer kicks, or stomps. I love that Pride had a funky weight class system, and that some of these match-ups are even possible.

I think some of the Stats/moves are absurd, and make me believe the makers of this game don't really follow the sport. (I.E. Jon Jones having boxing as good as Anderson Silva & having his ground game much weaker, or Joe Lauzon's best stat as Cardio, Or Akiyama having strength as his weakest stat and Cardio as his best, Nate Diaz and Shogun having slams, Rampage/Carwin/Kampmann/Cro-cop(pride) having a lower Rating than Chris Caraiso. Frankie Edgar, Shogun, Machida having a lower rating than Urijah Faber. Junior Dos Santos Rashad, Hendo, Fitch, Nick Diaz having a lower rating than Mark Hominick. Etc...)

Overall i love the gameplay, and can only nitpick about the specifics that i find silly or short-sighted.

I also noticed that the stoppages are really really early. This may because I am fighting on competition. But the computer or I have been defending ourselves in the rocked mode and the fight gets called. Kinda makes me mad.

Another area that's interesting is when you finish your fight and it for a to the results for the rest of the card (career mode) that non of the other fights go to decision and rarely is there a win by sub. 90% of the time its a win inside the first 2 rounds by ko/tko.

Fights getting stopped while not unconscious and while you're intelligently defending yourself? Sounds like a real MMA fight!

So far I enjoy it. Made a decent Vochanchyn and Eddie Bravo.

Love Pride mode though I wish Fedor and Saku where included.

nevermind about submissions. Just made my first created fighter. Made him like the ugly looking under dog type guy and I have 3 subs with him so far.

The whole side control is horrible...like 2010's elbows in close...2-3 quick elbows and you're rocked

more strange things that I have seen. In career mode the fight of the night was a 15 second submission......Also I am on a 10 match winning streak and still no title shot.

I hate the online play. Not because of lag or anything but because of the jerks on their.
My online record is 1-3. Not impressive. But their was 3 extra wins that should have been on their had my opponents not dropped out of the fight before I beat them.

I hope they patch this to where if you drop out of the fight it's considered a loss.

UFC 3 is the best UFC game so far.
